Time 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Notes/Description Bookstores are the unsung heroes of the Open Educational Resources movement. OER has added yet another component to the already complex world of textbook distribution.

Michigan Colleges Online invites you to join your colleagues from bookstores around the state to talk about how Open Educational Resources have impacted your work. A panel discussion with Kelly Koch at Mid Michigan Community College and Kim Oakes and Lisa Anderson from Muskegon Community College and moderator, Tina Ulrich, will be followed by a chance for you to ask questions and share your experience working with faculty, staff, and vendors to make OER available to your students.

Topics covered will include:
Textbook prices
Expected bookstore contribution to the general fund
New inclusive access models
Print versions of OER
Third party operators
Role of the bookstore in the college

Join us for a one-hour opportunity to share your experiences with your peers and get new ideas for promoting textbooks affordability.
